[Scratch Build] The Wood Brothers

post #1 of 87
Thread Starter 
Hi guys!
I have new project called The Wood Brothers. I'm building two wood cases. First mid-tower case for my pc, and one case and i will fit four hdd's in. Components will be cooled with water: radiator will be on top of the case.

I already done some work on cases, and here are the pictures.

So, I cut some parts for mid-tower and assemble it for testing.
Here is some pictures. Enjoy





I did some work on radiator.

Baking biggrin.gif



And painting





After measuring, cutting and sanding I got PSU mounting holes and hole for hot air to come out.



Tested. Like a glove! biggrin.gif



Radiator got dry so I checked how it's look on case. This stand screws are not final standings for radiator.



Also I got this after little waiting.

HDD case in da haus! biggrin.gif




I decide to go with space for five drives, and some space for Raspberry Pi.

Also i made radiator standoffs for easy radiator removal.



I cut the hole for I/O ports.


Also i monted the radiator.


And i got remaining parts for water cooling.





After drilling, gluing and stuff I got nice clean res.

After some thinking I figure out how to mount the pump.

On down side pump has two unused 4mm holes.


I cut two 2 cm aluminum pieces and drill holes in it.


And this is how it looks when mounted.





One notice, screw is going through down side of the case and holding all that together.

Last important construction piece is done.
I present to you mobo tray.




Measure twice, cut once. biggrin.gif




Mounted.



Lets see how mobo fits.




Few extra pic.




I still need to mount two thermometers and first phase is over.

I like it!! Nice how it's wood but you can still see a lot of the components through the front cos the gaps are quite wide.

I might be missing something here, but why bake the res? Does it help with painting?
